49ers give permission to assistant to interview for promotion

It appears as if the 49ers are going to lose another assistant coach.


Mike Singletary has given permission to Shane Day, who has been with the 49ers for three seasons as a quality control coach, to interview to become the quarterbacks coach under new Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz. Day worked with Martz during the 2008 season with the 49ers.


Prior to joining the 49ers, Day worked two seasons at the University of Michigan as assistant quarterbacks coach and quality control coach in charge of developing the program’s young quarterbacks.


Quality control is an entry level NFL position that involves a lot of clerical work, such as inputting game plans and compiling the daily practice report.


After the 49ers reluctantly gave offensive line coach Chris Foerster permission to accept a job with the Redskins, Singletary said he would turn down all future requests. But it would’ve been considered bad form for Singletary to prevent a staff member from taking a significant promotion such as this.
